There is increasingly more expensive maintenance that needs to be performed on the Dutch railway network. Good maintenance schedules reduce costs, minimise hindrance to passenger and freight travel, and follow restrictions imposed by available resources, legislation and other agreements. The railway maintainer has modelled this maintenance...

In this thesis max-plus algebra is introduced and applied to the problem of controlling train delays. Two control strategies for the propagation of delays are discussed. The first is by letting certain trains run faster when a delay is detected, the second is by breaking connections between trains that have to wait for each other in order to...

The performance and behaviour of critical infrastructure in case of disruptions is an important topic and we are still lacking of insights. Due to disruptions, infrastructure becomes unavailable and may force the trains and passengers to adapt. In this paper, we introduce a problem of railway network vulnerability from the perspective of...

Defects that occur on train sets have to be repaired in a repair location and this has consequences on the transportation network. This paper proposes a decision support model that is developed for optimising the decisions of when and where to repair that defect train set. In practice, there is no clear overview of the effects of such decisions...

Last-minute maintenance planning is often undesirable, as it may cause downtime during operational hours, may require rescheduling of other activities, and does not allow to optimize the management of spare parts, material, and personnel. In spite of the aforementioned drawbacks of last-minute planning, most existing methods plan maintenance...

ProRail Traffic Control would like to have examined what the performance of crossovers for rescheduling is in case of partial obstructions. The need for quantitative information about the performance of crossovers in The Netherlands has grown. The research is intended to fill this knowledge gap by investigating the performance of crossovers in...
